SDSS host hoop rivalry games Friday

Sun Devils and Pacers senior boys and girls teams square off for cups

Bragging rights will be on the line Friday night when the South Delta Sun Devils welcome the Delta Pacers for their annual senior basketball rivalry games.

The Brasnett/Lawrence Cup girls’ game will tip-off at 6 p.m. with the Pacers looking for their third consecutive win. Both teams are part of the Fraser Valley Tier II League with Delta sitting in second place with a 5-1 record while the Devils own a 3-3 mark.

The Stebbings/Murray Cup will follow with the Sun Devils looking for their second straight victory after a six-year run by their cross-town rival. The Pacers play at the 3A level where they sit 4-0 in Fraser Valley West play. 

South Delta is at the 4A level for larger schools and will be heading to Tamanawis Secondary for next week’s Southwest League playoff tournament after finishing sixth with a 3-5 record.

The games are hosted by the South Delta Basketball Association — the long-running club program for Ladner and Tsawwassen kids. 

The idea is to showcase the sport in the honour of four former volunteer teacher/coaches who gave up so much of their lives to help develop the game.
